Pros

    Former Employee - Engineer in Denver, CO
    Former Employee - Engineer in Denver, CO

    I worked at Trimble Navigation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits package is good, with 401(k) matching. Health insurance costs are low. Access to company-sponsored training. Consistently profitable organization.

    If you're in the right department or have the right manager, it's smooth sailing with good work-life balance and good opportunities for training and advancement.

    Cons

    If you're in the wrong department or have the wrong manager, expect a poor work-life balance, and to be treated badly. I witnessed several instances where policies and procedures were deliberately abused in order to persecute or fire good employees over trivialities. Management eliminated a portion of a business operation by trumping-up policy/procedure infractions so as to terminate staff "for cause," rather than pay out a few thousand dollars' severance per employee to lay them off properly. This reflects poor business ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It takes sound ethics and professionalism to lead a successful team. When I worked at Trimble, it was as if I worked for two different organizations. One organization was well-managed and prosperous. The other was poorly-managed and ran into the ground. Choosing the right leadership team will make or break not only your organization, but also the livelihood of your team ... the people who really make things happen.
